[captioning performed by national captioning institute] host: the video on your screen is some of the latest footage on the air raids in libya, courtesy of the aljazeera network. with the president act in town, questions are being raised about u.s. policy and goals in libya. that is our discussion this morning on the "washington journal" as we go through the newspapers. what do you think? how is the president handling the libya conflict so far? 202 is the area code -- how do you think the president is handling the libyan conflict. yesterday speaker john boehner sent this letter to the president. speaker boehner list several questions he asks the question
are in libya in the first place. he argued the u.s. had a responsibility to act in order to stop gadhafi from killing his own people, and the president took on critics who say the u.s. has no business getting involved. >> given the costs and risks of intervention, we must always measure our interest against the need for action. but that cannot be an argument for never acting on behalf of what's right. to brush aside america's responsibility as a leader and our to our fellow human beings under such circumstances would have been a betrayal of who we are. >> but some insist the fundamental questions are still unanswered. house speaker boehner i still habit explained what success in libya will look like. while the president reiterated he wants gadhafi gone, he said that's not part of the mission. >> if we tried to overthrow gadhafi by force, our coalition would splinter. we would likely have to put u.s. troops on the ground to accomplish that mission. or risk killing many civilians in the air. to be blunt, we went down that road in iraq. >> savannah, the speech was necessarily, had to give it. re
. is that the uber liberal anthony weiner talking? we will report on possible hypocrisy on the left. >> u.s. interests can't just mean validating some kind of post american theory of intervention. >> bill: governor palin hammering mr. obama on his leadership. we will take a hard look at that. >> ♪ on the road again. ♪ i just can't wait to get on the road again. >> bill: once ginsenger willie nelson could get away with the marijuana charge. this time the situation is truly bizarre ♪ i can't wait to get on the road again. >> bill: caution, you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: no matter what side you are on, the fog coming from the far left is staggering. listen to anthony weiner the liberal congressman from new york. >> we are a great, powerful country. what's the value of being a powerful country if we are not going to step in against tyrants slaughtering their people. that's the point the president made tonight. >> bill: are you kidding me? what about the iraq war? just five days ago congressman weiner says he regrets voting in favor of it eve
of america has done what we said we would do. >> ok. so last night, he was talking about my leadership. u.s. led. go back 10 days ago, we didn't hear that. listen to this montage. >> in this effort, the united states is prepared to act as part of an international coalition. american leadership is essential. but that does not mean acting alone. in this effort, the united states is acting with a broad coalition. make no mistake, today we are part of a broad coalition. our goal is focused. our cause is just. and our coalition is strong. >> well, so that's the president as he evolved into this position and i think one of the many columnists who looked to the speech and analyzed the speech and said it best, this is a good speech if he said it 11 days ago, he would have quieted 95% of the critics. i would have found a way to give the secretary of state some credit. >> no kidding. she got him into this thing. >> it's amazing how much stuff you can do if you don't mind who gets the credit. that would have been a perfect time with hillary clinton leading -- secretary of state hillary clinton leadi
was simply that i did not believe that the president had outlined a vital u.s. american interest in our engagement in libya, that the united states cannot afford to be the police force of the wor world. this week, with the president's address to the nation, i had hoped that i would hear something to change my mind, or, better yet, something that would instill confidence about the president's decision, but unfortunately, this address provided the american people with many more questions than answers. president obama left me wondering why any vital u.s. american interest in libya would justify military action. he said refugees would stream into tunisia and egypt, but we often aid refugees without f-15's. he said we needed to preserve the writ of the united nations security council, but he did not explain why the safety of our men and women in uniform should ever be put at the service of that body. he said that we needed to show dictators across the region that they could not use violence to cling to power. but if president obama's policy fails to get rid of qaddafi, that iqaddafi,that --
the effort to topple a dictatorship. with the u.s. currently involved in afghanistan, iraq, and providing large-scale humanitarian assistance in japan, it does not diminish." collins of maine said this. "i remain troubled that the president did not seek congressional consent in the absence of a national emergency. libya does not affect our country's vital interest." the president talked about who will lead and when. here is what he had to say. >> this transfer from the united states to nato will take place on wednesday. going forward, the lead in enforcing the no-fly zone and protecting civilians on the ground will transition to our allies and partners. i'm fully confident that our coalition will keep the pressure on gaddafi's remaining forces. in that effort, the united states will play a supporting role, including intelligence, logistical support, search and rescue assistance, and capabilities to jam regime communications. because of this transition to a broader nato-based coalition, the risk and cost of this operation to our military and to american taxpayers will be reduced significan
on "good morning america" and appeared to be suggesting that the u.s. is considering a request to arm the rebel opposition. some members of the coalition are pushing for this, but there are open questions about who the opposition is. i asked a pentagon official just that yesterday. >> we're not talking with the opposition. we have -- we would like a much better understanding of the opposition. we don't have it. so, yes, it does matter to us, and we're trying to fill in those knowledge gaps. >> reporter: that includes questions about towns in eastern libya, which have a history of anti-american activity and have served as recruiting zones in towns like darnah. in april, 2008, a massive intelligence find in northern iraq showed 19% of the suicide bombers in iraq came from darnah, libya. "newsweek" did a cover story on this in april, 2008, focusing on darnah and the recruitment by al-qaeda of suicide bombers in the libyan town. we've asked the state department about it and have been told that they're not doing interviews on the issue of the opposition at this point in time. megyn? megyn:
, can you elaborate? >> i have had the privilege in this job a traveling to half of the u.s. attorney's offices across the country. as part of our visits to make sure that we are aggressively enforcing civil rights laws and listening, we are listening and learning as i did in chicago from. sticklers north dakota muslim sheik is on committee. it really tears my heart out to listen to this story. i will never forget a trip to tennessee where and iman talks about how his son does not want to go to school because he is so scared every day. they were telling him, go home, you terrorist. this is his own. we see this across the country. we see this in a wide array of areas, employment, religious zoning context, school context. >> according to data from the equal opportunity employment commission, muslims of 0.45% of religious discrimination cases. those i mentioned earlier comprise less than 1% of the population. "there is a level of hatred and animosity that is shocking. i have been doing this for 31 years, i have never seen such an to pass the toward workers." among other things, the suit
that the u.s. intervened to prevent the slaughter of civilians. before we show you more of what he had to say let's go rapid fire around the table. pat buchanan, five seconds or less, how would you characterize the president's speech? >> left more questions open than answered. >> donny deutsche? >> i thought it was fantastic. >> of course you did. >> he looked like a leader and showed power of track cattle. >> i think it was solid. and holes in others. >> i still don't get his attempts to explain it why we don't go into syria again and another country. >> that was the question left unanswered. speaking in washington last night the president insisted not taking action would have been a betrayal of who we are as americans. >> if we waited one more day, benghazi, a city nearly the size of charlotte,ed the conscience the world. it was not in our national interest to let that happen. i refused to let that happen. >> he ruled out targeting moammar gadhafi. warning that trying to oust him militarily would be a mistake as costly as the war in iraq. >> if we tried to overthrow gadhafi by force, our co
the transfer to nato leadership by wednesday. the u.s. will turn over the reins. the coalition has 16 members of the data. we will show you those if you have not seen the list. let's take a call from deidre alabama, a democrat. >> i want to say kudos to president obama. he did what he needed to do. i feel as a democrat that a man with his intellect knows exactly what he is doing. i believe the american people should stand behind him and understand he is doing what he can to keep us safe and other countries save as well. >> what was the most powerful argument the president made tonight for your ears? >> he made so many good, valid points. as far as the no-fly zone, as far as i am concerned, like what happened with 9/11, i do not feel if president obama was president at the time that would have happened. what he is doing is heartfelt. he cares for all of these other countries. he cares for the american people. >> mike is in new haven ohio, an independent there. did the president make the case for you tonight? >> no, he did not. people better wake up. he starts a war, it takes off for brazil, an
contacts or other u.s. officials' contacts with the opposition since the -- that first meeting in paris between the secretary and mr. jabril. and tell us if you are at all closer to making a decision on whether to follow the lead that france so helpfully started out a couple weeks and recognizing them a legitimate government. >> since the start of the crisis, when we saw that the council had constituted itself as some kind of temporary governing body, i and certainly members of my staff recognized that some of those people were people that we had dealt with during our tenures in libya. and so right from the start, i had been reaching out to the leaders of the council. and since that time, since the embassy was reconstituted here as i said, we had extensive dealings and contacts through our various programs, especially educational programs, with the people of the east. i had a very active public affairs section in libya, and they were always communicating with the -- with the doctors and jurists and people who, in fact, now are part of the council. so we had a good in to those people. si
are routine, about once a month, and that realistically, killing a u.s. agent along the border is bad for business. it makes it more difficult to get your load across and make money because you get more agents, money, resources. having said that, this is the reality that these guys are dealing with. megyn? megyn: thank you, william. this report is one day after the homeland security department announced a $5 million reward in the shooting of jaime zapata last month. they were ambushed last month in mexico. zapata and his partner were shot several times. zapata died of his injuries. they were there to help the mexican government with its drug war. some arrests have been made, but the investigation is ongoing. this is another extreme weather alert for you, as we watch the storms moving across florida. mother nature is playing a cruel april fools joke on the snow-weary northeast. look at that pink. powerful storm developing. forecasters warn that it will intensify bringing strong winds and heavy, wet snow along the east coast. they're warning folks to prepare for power outages and major
gates said the attack is not of vital interests to u.s.. >> the way you have to look at this attack is, it is one more thing that obama is on the hook for. colin powell said you break it, you own it in cautioning. >> president bush about going too iraq. think about the things obama is on the hook for. if oil price go up, anti-oil drilling. terror attack weakness in terms of the terror policies. if egypt blows up and becomes a muslim brotherhood state, the fact that he encouraged that rebellion. if libya resorts to ongoing violence he's on the hook for that. of course for the economy. you just have -- you have so many outcomes that can undo him. i believe he's taken the first step into quicksand. when you back -- when you say your rational is you are going to protect civilians. was if we get rid of gadhafi and his henchmen are just as deeply embedded at the baathist were in iraq they go underground the united states is not going to send ground troops in? we are not going to get involved? not another iraq. >> sean: i love your perspective, you are right. he's on the hook for all of these
stalemate, which is very bad for the u.s. and the rest of the coalition maintaining this no-fly zone. i can't see anything good about a projected stalemate. it's true, we don't know what the opposition would be like when they take over, but there are actually some promising signs. but the important thing is we should be in there, we should be working with them. i don't know why what we do with them should be covert at all. frankly, there's a lot we ought to do that's not lethal, starting with just the fact of recognize thing is a war of momentum. right after the strikes began, the momentum shifted back to the opposition. it looks dangerously as though it's tilting the other way now. the u.s. would have joined qatar and france and other countries and recognizing this provisional government, i think it would send a powerful message to gadhafi that the end is coming. >> from what we understand, there are cia officers on the ground trying to understand, i guess, make contacts with the opposition, figure out who the players are. how does it work, though, to actually train a force on the ground?
that the u.s. finally got involved. the majority of americans believe that was the right move. i said last week, you can't criticize the president on that. it's the timing. it's the timing of this issue and then what was the full fledged mission down the road. and you start adding up now the costs, this is what i think is going to wake up america. do you know that already, this has cost us $1 billion? each one of those tomahawk missiles, 140 of them ohave bee used. $30 million a piece. that f-15 that crash landed $30 million. what about the united states starts arming the rebel? we're talking about billions of dollars here. we have an economic crisis on the home front. >> let's talk about somebody else. is there any doubt in our foreign policy when you look at people that are thorns in our side, it's iran and syria. for some reason, this administration has looked at the eye doctors and said he's a reformer. he's going to bring change. i can't see any change that's good. hezbollah has been financed. hamas has been financed. their allegiance with iran has never been stronger. now, something
that the majority of the u.s. segment was brought up a piece by piece. it will be truly amazing. >> congratulations on a successful mission. the question will be for someone who wants to tackle it. i do not think people on the ground can appreciate what the living spaces are like in the space station. now that it is complete can you talk a little bit about how large it is and how much space you had to move around in? >> just to start off, this space station is the largest pressurized volume in place in history -- in space in the history. i use the word that my son uses, which isginormous -- is g inormous. it is equivalent to a seventh 47 or bigger. it is oppressive -- a 747 or better. we can use every single one of the walls or models in a way that we cannot do on the ground. it makes for a wonderful resource for science and living and being up here floating around. it is great. >> i have a question about garbage, literally. how much trash does the iss generate? where do you put it and do you recycle? >> we do recycle certain things. we recycle our water and -- our urine and turned it into water. t
